Audition Details

Lord of the Flies 2024

Aquila brings William Golding's classic story back to the Fringe in 2024.  Adapted by Nigel Williams, the story is about a group of children stranded on a desert island.  The play charts their descent into chaos and brutality, and is an intense and dramatic piece of theatre.

We are looking for young actors who can bring the characters to life and have the intensity and depth to help achieve a strong production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Tips for filming:

Try and perform in good light and make sure you frame your shot so you are in it! We are not auditioning technology just you.  Take your time and don't worry about making it perfect! These audition videos are to give us an idea of your ability and suitability for the production. Some audition scenes have more than one person speaking; try and get someone else to read the lines off camera.
